OYIS External Programs

Designed with a holistic, hands-on approach to student learning, the OYIS Saturday Program caters to English learners from 3 years old to 12 years old. The program focuses on developing the language abilities of the students in addition to their literacy, grammar, social, and life skills. With an International Teaching Team dedicated to facilitating the learning needs of your children, we provide an immersive English environment where your child can grow, learn and have fun in a safe, engaging class environment.We understand the difficulty of choosing a program that is right for your child, so potential students join us for a trial day before applications are processed and your child starts.
With extensive teaching experience themselves, the External Programs Management Team is committed to providing you with high-level bi-lingual customer service and support and welcomes the opportunity to talk with parents and answer any questions they may have.

Student Engagement

Engagement can be explained generally as the interest and attention levels of the students in the class. Participation levels, how they interact with the material, how they access it, and the passion they show for it as they are taught in class. It also can more generally refer to the motivation that the students feel for school and education.

YMCA History.

Since 1882, the Osaka YMCA has been a trailblazer in internationalization and education. Its first English language schools and university preparatory courses became a model for an entire industry of after-school education in Japan. Today, the Osaka YMCA has a wide variety of operations and is the main provider of international education in Osaka, Japan.

Frequently asked questions.

With engaging teachers who provide students with fun and enjoyable learning experiences, OYIS Saturday classes provide your child with an immersive English environment. With specialized IT and PE lessons the children have the opportunity to participate in a range of activities that cater specifically to their age groups needs. Students are able to develop their speaking and literacy skills through workbook lessons, discussions and hands-on learning activities. Children are encouraged to collaborate with one another in teams to improve teamwork skills whilst also getting the opportunity to work independently.

An immersive language environment is one in which the child is surrounded by that language throughout the day. Studying a language when you are a child has significant benefits to a range of learning areas. Even more so when the environment the children are learning within is an immersion environment. Throughout the day the teachers they interact with speak in English to help them learn more and continue to develop their skills further.

Saturday classes run according to the Japanese calendar of April to March. There are 35 lessons in total for the year. During the Winter, Summer and Spring breaks, parents also have the option to enroll their children in one of our three intensive courses that are held. Parents choosing to have their child attend these programs will not only be able to add to their children’s English learning experience, but will also be eligible for discounts on all the programs offered. More information can be found here.

The Nakatsu OYIS facility boasts spacious, colourful learning environments, a large gym, a Science/IT Lab and an outside pool that is used during the summer months. Designed to enhance the student's educational experiences, we also have a sizable outside area the children are able to use during breaks and outside time. Classrooms have large windows that let in natural light and movable furniture to allow for both independent and group work. We currently have 15 classes on Saturday for children aged between 3 and 11 years old.

We have a number of events the children participate in. The biggest being the Performance which is held at the end of the school year. The children also participate in Halloween and Christmas  Events.

In the 2020-21 school year we are planning on increasing the number of events held throughout the year to include more events as we know how much fun they are for the children. 

View events here.

Through the use of Google Classroom each week teachers upload the weekly homework and a brief description of what they have done in class each week. We also post frequently on the oyis.external Facebook and Instagram pages to provide parents with a window into weekly activities, both in class and throughout the day. Parents are also provided with the opportunity to see the class twice in the year. Parents also receive a report during the year from the teachers outlining how their child is progressing in the class and all parents are encouraged to contact us for further information should they require it or have any questions.

We pride ourselves on choosing teachers who not only have English teaching experience within Japan as this helps to position them to better understand the unique needs of our students, but also those who can demonstrate engaging, enjoyable learning experiences for the students. View them here.
